Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver (Faber & Faber, 2023)
This year’s Women’s Prize for Fiction winner, Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver (ISBN: 9780571376483, paperback). A modern take on a classic Dickens, told by a superb storyteller. Demon is born into poverty in the Appalachian Mountains and ‘on the wrong side of luck’. He’ll need all of his charm and wit if he’s to find the love and safety he seeks. It’s described as: 'Raw, angry, starkly beautiful’.
